Nevada Rural EMS Conference
The Rural Nevada EMS Conference is an annual three-day conference that helps Nevada's EMS personnel better serve their rural communities. Our goal is to provide quality education to rural providers from EMR to Paramedic. Quality speakers from around the country as well as local speakers are brought in to share their knowledge. Classes are taught to meet the needs of the rural providers and provide continuing education units (CEUs) for re-certification.
Attendees also have the opportunity to network with fellow rural EMS personnel from across the state as well as neighboring states. While participants appreciate receiving state-approved CEUs, some of the most valuable learning comes from the sharing of expertise among fellow EMS personnel. In addition, this networking promotes comradery for many individuals who often live in isolated communities
The conference is self-funded with support from Nevada State EMS, local mines, vendors, and various sponsors. This allows for relatively low conference fees and a limited number of scholarships.
